California High Court Voids S.F. Gay Marriages

The California Supreme Court rules that San Francisco's mayor overstepped his authority last February when he led the city in issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. The ruling invalidates the unions of more than 4,000 same-sex couples who got married before the court shut down ceremonies in March. Hear NPR's Michele Norris and NPR's Richard Gonzales
